Happy Founders Day!!!!
Seven college aged women decided to create a legacy of achievement through higher education and service to their community. They would dream of a better way of life for children and the community they would eventually live. These 7 women decided to share their vision with other professionals and friends. The end result was the establishment of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, a Greek letter organization for Teachers, on November 12, 1922 at Butler University, Indianapolis, Indiana and Normal School in Terre Haute, Indiana. From the date of inception to the present, Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority has continued to dream and bring to reality the initial legacy of achievement through higher education and service to our communities for the last 93 years. Thank you Founders of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc.:
Nannie Mae G. Johnson
Mary Lou Gardner Little
Vivian White Marbury
Bessie R. Martin
Hattie Mae Dulin Redford
